Story/History of recipe
Khaja in general is a fried pastry of India popular in places like Bihar, Andhra, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha and a few parts of Nepal. Madatha Khaja is a special sweet from Andhra Pradesh. It is originally from a village called Tapeswaram, situated near Kakinada, a city of Andhra. Hence, this sweet is also known as Tapeswaram Khaja. Traditionally, Khajas are prepared by frying the dough in ghee and later dipping the fried pieces in sugar syrup. Unlike other variations of Khaja, Madatha Khaja has a layered texture that can quickly absorb in the sugar syrup when it is soaked in. This amazing sweet is perfect to prepare for any festival like Diwali and Christmas.
